The fringe theatre company Foco Novo had a particular interest in encouraging new plays by Black British writers. The collection contains scripts by writers such as Alfred Fagon. The Company also aimed to reach audiences who would not usually go to the theatre e.g. it toured Miners’ Halls through the auspices of the National Union of Mineworkers.
